About me

I am a passionate traveler and enterpreneur. After 10 years with McKinsey I recently founded SmartGuide to turn every phone into a private guide.

I lived on 4 continents, worked in 20 countries and traveled to 70 countries including some real adventures. If you want to know how it feels getting kissed by a shark in Panama, dining with cannibals in Indonesia, swimming in Ganges in Varanasi, witnessing air funeral in Tibet or hitchiking across Sahara, I am happy to share.

Why did you join the community?

I founded SmartGuide to elevate the travel guide experience using latest technology incl. AR and AI. I am looking for partners.

What is your favorite travel destination?

Maui ... and just about anywhere else in the world
